Posted by Azumi on   0 comments

Thou Swell

Lyrics:Lorenz Hart
Music:Richard Rodgers

The song was publishe 1927.

The music was written by Richard Rodgers, with words by Lorenz Hart,
for the 1927 musical A Connecticut Yankee.
The lyric is notable, as indicated by the title, for its mix of old English
and modern slang as the story takes place in both contemporary times
and in King Arthur's court.

There are many popular and jazz vocal renditions,
including those by Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra,
Blossom Dearie, Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Williams.
Fats Waller and Billy May both recorded the song instrumentally.


A Connecticut Yankee


Thou swell, thou witty
Thou sweet, thou grand
Wouldst kiss me pretty
Wouldst hold my hand

Both thine eyes are cute too
What they do to me
Hear me holler I choose a
Sweet lolla paloosa in thee

I'd feel so rich
In a hut for two
Two rooms and kitchen
I'm sure would do

Give me just a plot of
Not a lot of land
Thou swell, thou witty
Thou swell, thou witty
Thou swell, thou witty
Thou grand

I'd feel so rich
In a hut for two
Two rooms and kitchen
I'm sure will do

Give me just a plot of
Not a lot of land
Thou swell, thou witty
Thou swell, thou witty
Thou swell, thou witty
Thou grand
